Personal Notes

Bought back Blackfordby from Hugh Henry Robertson-Aikman when that line of Joyces died out. He comissioned the family tree (on which this is based) to get a knighthood.
There was a case where justice and law parted. “Gentleman of the Press, I ask you to be silent.” Counsel: “I am going to make an order which I think will be just, but not according to the Law; and if you don’t like it you can take it to the Court of Appeal and have me upset”. There was no appeal.
